Description

Grandpa's Girls by Interior Salish children's author Nicola Campbell offers a delightful picture book about a young girl and her cousins who enjoy their visits to their grandfather's working farm. The book captures the unbridled joy and excitement of visiting one's relatives, exploring a hay loft, feeding crabapples to the horse, examining jars of preserves in the root cellar, and endlessly running and playing. Based on her childhood experiences, the storyteller reminds us that the best time of all is just being with one's grandparent. The girls even discover the secret room that hold countless treasures especially Grandpa's World War 2 military medals. The pastel, cartoon-like illustrations by Kim LaFave offers young children a heartwarming reading experience. Interspersed throughout the book are a few words of Interior Salish. Interest Level: K-3; Reading Level: 3.2. FNCR 2013
